Just back from a week at the Club Riu in Negril Jamaica. Large and well cared for AI resort that has a little for everyone. Beach - South end was busy with games and exercise classes while the North end was more private and quiet. Some fair snorkling around the corner of the North end. Some vendors along the beach, but nothing like 7 mile.
The sister Riu (Tropical Bay) is less than a mile away. The area between the propeties was a variety of vendors selling everything from hair braiding to fresh cooked lobster (a must!!!!!). I am a runner. I toyed with the idea of getting in some miles on the road, but never made it off the beach. Morning runs along the ocean were soo awesome. It's 1.3 miles from the far edge of the RIU to the end of the sand on Bloody Bar. Runs, or walks in the morning with be shaded for a large portion of your time. The shade was welcomed for a few "fuzzy" runs in the morning. Back to the resort. Staff = great Food = good/great. Speciality restaurants, food ok service very good. Drinks = great Entertainment = fair/poor Reggae night good, ideal coule funny. Be ready to do alot of walking, as this resort is spread out. If you can request a room in the first couple buildings. Second stay here, we would go back. This reasonably priced resorts allows for some time away (excursions) without feeling "guilty".
